Let’s Give Donovan McNabb a “McBreak”

Donovan McNabb has had a rough offseason. First someone ran their car into the fence surrounding his house and abruptly left the scene. Then, boxer Bernard Hopkins went out of his way to single him out for not being “black enough”. Now, Washington Redskins backup quarterback John Beck is talking about him like he’s dead, or at the very least no longer on the Redskins roster.

 

Why is he such a magnet for potshots? McNabb is the Eagles all-time leader in wins and every all-time franchise passing record worth noting, which is even more remarkable when you consider his leading receivers in Philly were guys like Todd Pinkston, Kevin Curtis, and James Thrash.  And, you don’t lead a team to five NFC Championship games (2001-2004, 2008) and a Super Bowl if you suck.

 

What do you think, SportsBloggers? Is it just me, or does McNabb deserve a “McBreak”?

I’ve been a freelance journalist since 2000 and have had my work published via AskMen, Sports Illustrated, Bleacher Report, Busted Coverage, and Autotrader. I’ve done stand-up comedy. I'm a dad, youth soccer coach, and team statistician for the oldest indoor football team in the world, the Omaha Beef. I own a design agency in Omaha, NE called little guy design. I’ve married six couples in 10 years and my Marriage to Still Married ratio is 6:6. I always say, it isn’t so much about the “love,” as it is the tasteless jokes that became vows. I started the I-80 Sports Blog to have all the work I've published located in one place and to write about things I want to write about. I don't take anything too seriously and it is a real time saver.
